HARNESS AND HEAD HALTER

Flagline Dog Harness With Handle This is a great harness for walking in woods or in wilderness because it has support for lifting the dog. I recommend it if you plan on truffle hunting with your dog.

Freedom No Pull Harness (paid link) Good basic two point harness. Good for using with 6 position or double headed leash.

K9 Julius makes a good one. It’s easy to put on and is comfortable on the dog and you can buy patches to add to the harness, bonus!

Dog Games Original Fleece-Lined Dog Harness – good for short haired dogs or dogs that really don’t like wearing a harness. A lot of people use this for scent work.
